var videoOptions = {

  videoCodec: "libx264",
  size: "640x?",
  audioBitrate: "128k",
  audioChannels: 2,
  format: "mp4",
  pixelFormat: "yuv420p",


These are the video options which can be used to make the slideshow. These are the default options which can be used.


// call the videoshow library

    console.log("Conversion started" + command)
    console.log("Some error occured" + err)
    console.log("Conversion completed" + output)
